    i'm looking for pay as you go deals, like buying 50gb worth of data to download with, does anyone know any decent deals anywhere in the UK? thanks, they must have:

    decent retention
    min 20 connections
    under £7
    secure connections
    and proper pay as you go, some websites i have seen recharge your payment card once your data has been used up, i want control of my payments, not them.

    I've recently switched to Astraweb (was previously using Giganews).
    Service is perfect, 20 connections, free SSL, excellent retention, unlimited downloads, etc.
    its only 15 USD, don't know how much that is in £ but shouldn't be too high anyway..

    that is what i was on before, i was on their DSL service for $11 a month but they were charging me £10 a month, that is way too much so i've canceled it and going for the pay as you go option, that way i can control how much i pay instead of me wasting as i wasn't downloading much anyway and i was still charged £10 plus thier exchange rates are always wrong, when has $11 ever been £10? i've complained to them about it but they do nothing about it.

    yeah just be warned, that their exchange rates can be "funny" and they may charge you more than they need too, i was on the $11 a month offer too, whats the link anyway, i thought they stopped the offer.

    The only problem I've had with Astraweb (compared to Giganews) is the amount of incomplete files, and their retention isn't as good as Giganews. But the free SSL is a definite bonus this day and age [​IMG]
